(This post contains major, HUGE spoilers. I figured most everyone has done Dragonblight by this point ,as I'm leveling a bit slower than most, but thou hast been warned)
I had more fun in game the past couple of nights than I have in a really long time. The questlines were amazingly engaging, and I allowed myself to really get lost in the story.
The entire Wrathgate sequence was well done. Alexstraza is amazing whether in her human disguise or in her true form.
I found myself really torn about Jaina as the Battle for Undercity errupted. Were her actions traitorous or was she working to ensure the greater good for all of the Alliance by preventing yet another war with the Horde. There was something about the humans retaking Lorderon / Undercity that really seemed right to me (and with Phasing technology completely doable).
As if the lore wasn't incredible enough, I then did a quest where I got to see the entire sequence where Arthas takes the Frostmourne.
I had always thought that Arthas was still a 'good' person who had been warped by his soul being combined with that of Ner'zhul (the Lich King). As I see him (pre Frostmourne) order the deaths of his own men by sinking the ships and then blatantly disregard Muradin's advice and take Frostmourne, I've come to conclude that I, like Uther before me, was wrong about Arthas.
The good man who Arthas was, the good man that Uther trained, the good man that Jania loved, was long gone well before Arthas took hold of Frostmourne. And now it falls to me and the other heroes of the Alliance to put an end to him.
But I ended my night cheering as Muradin GOT UP. Everyone thought that one of the fragments of Frostmourne's icy tomb had killed Muradin. B
Muradin has always been something of a hero of mine. I mourned his death while playing Warcraft 3. As was hinted at in the quest I did taking the Light Infused Artifact to King Bronzebeard, Muradin is alive. He doesn't know who he is, but he IS alive. I can only hope I find him and reveal who he really is at some point.
I am having so much fun playing the game right now. I know most of my friends are now 4 to 5 levels ahead of me, but to quote Veneretio, "I'm not slow or behind. I'm moving at exactly the pace I want to be. Were I to move faster, I'd lose more than I'd gain. In game and life."
